“The Eagles arrive in Britain on Concorde tonight for a British tour that includes four sell-out concerts at Wembley Empire Pool, giving them impeccable credentials as the latest rock phenomenon.”

“A huge curtain behind the band occasionally lifted to reveal 28 violinists and seven cellists, perched incongruously and waiting somewhat ironically to battle with the hall’s acoustics on Wasted Time.”

Concert review in The Guardian (London) – Apr. 26, 1977

“It was tight, it was neat, it sounded just right – and that’s not an easy feat in the great hollow barn that is Wembley.”

“Their roots are deep and varied but include bands such as Poco and Rick Nelson’s Stone Canyon Band.”

Record Mirror magazine – Apr. 30, 1977

“I approached half a dozen fans at random and asked them whether they could name all five members of the band. No one could.”
“This curious anonymity points to an interesting fact about the Eagles, namely that their appeal depends upon their music alone.”
